The Ecogothic

Velvet Dress Ecogothic copyNature and the Gothic are well known to each other….

“Many times I’ve been asked to define the ecoGothic, but  I always seem to end up telling a story about a black velvet dress I once bought. It’s not a very academic or scholarly way of going about a definition I suppose, but it captures my sense of the ecoGothic best. I originally thought the dress was for me…and I was partially right. But then I realized that forests and oceans, skies and bogs and wetlands…nature loves black velvet, too.” —Hilary Scharper.
